You can attach the following to posts:

Videos (MP4, M4V, MOV, WebM) up to 40MB. Video will be transcoded to H.264 MP4 with a maximum bitrate of 1300kbps and framerate of 60fps.

Audio (MP3, OGG, WAV, FLAC, OPUS, AAC, M4A, 3GP) up to 40MB. Audio will be transcoded to MP3 using V2 VBR (roughly 192kbps).

Multiple reports of issues logging in if you have the advanced UI enabled. Working on a fix, will update when resolved.

As a side note, don't click the "spam" button on emails from us, if you don't want them change your preferences instead.

We don't send any spam or marketing emails at all, but every time a handful of users do this we start getting blacklisted by email providers as they learn when you hit that. It's very expensive to send 10's of thousands of emails every month and you're just frustrating users who want / need that password reset email but might not get it /rant

We're seeing a high rate of rejected emails for Yahoo Mail users "due to user complaints"

Will change the IP we're sending emails from to try and work around this, but I'm aware of some users not being able to do password resets or email verification due to this. If you currently use Yahoo Mail as your registered email with us you might want to considering switching it to something else, even temporarily

Images (PNG, JPG, GIF) up to 8MB. Images will be downscaled to 1.6 megapixels (enough for a 1280x1280 image). Up to 4 images can be attached.

Animated GIFs are converted to soundless MP4s like on Imgur/Gfycat (GIFV). You can also upload soundless MP4 and WebM, which will be handled the same way.

Will be taking ABDL.link offline for a while this evening to migrate our media storage to make uploads more stable

We have opened up public registrations for ABDL.link again 🎉

Please support us financially on Patreon and tell your friends!

Doing some server updates so there might be a couple minutes of downtime over the next few hours or so.

Uploading should be working more reliably now, it's still not 100%, but much better than yesterday.

The issues with media are still ongoing unfortunately. Annoyingly it would be near impossible to migrate to a different provider while they are having issues.

Our media storage provider has been having issues for the last few days and as a result uploading/viewing media might not work all the time. Keeping an eye on it, but unfortunately the issue is out of our control.

Everything should be fixed now, let me know if you see any issues 🙂
